Microsoft’s recent buying spree continues this week as the company announced the acquisition of Clear Software. According to the company, the software automation delivery will integrate with Microsoft Power Apps and Power Automate products.

Clear Software is based in Zionsville, Indiana, and is a provider of enterprise-grade automation technology. Partner Microsoft chief executive Stephen Siciliano confirmed the deal in an official blog post.

Siciliano claims that the addition of Power Apps / Power Automate will promote a “more seamless experience” for users of these platforms to develop automations for Oracle, SAP and other systems:


“Organizations depend on their business applications to operate seamlessly across many different systems and data stores. Customers should know that their most critical business processes are designed to optimize work on these systems and data sets, no matter how complex the process, ” said Siciliano. “Customers will benefit from enhanced Power Platform integration with external systems. “


Since its opening in 2015, Clear Software has been an integration platform as a service (IPaaS) used in SAP and Oracle. It helps users build automated tools for cloud-based applications and platforms. It has over 100 predefined automations.

“Clear’s API access and system knowledge will strengthen Power Platform’s integration with external systems and accelerate how customers leverage data and processes that reside beyond Microsoft first-party services.” Siciliano continued. “We want to make it easier for customers to integrate a variety of systems when building business applications with Power Platform… We will share more with customers on how to access new features in the future. “

As usual, Microsoft has not confirmed the cost of the acquisition.

The company went shopping spree this year with the purchase of RiskIQ and also acquired CloudKnox Security. Microsoft is also bought Suplari then Peer5 for use in Microsoft Teams.
